I have been thinking about purchasing an Inspiron 6000 for use at
school. I was wondering if anyone has had any experience with
these....good or bad. Also....if there are any other compareable
notebooks in the same price range that I should consider, I would
appreciate your insight on that aswell.

I was looking at the one with the P4 M - 1.6GHZ, GMA Graphics, 512 DDR2
Ram, 80GB HDD, DVD/CD Burner.
